Salon Marketing Idea #1. Test printing flyers, sales letters, specials, and announcements on goldenrod paper. Studies have shown that it has a significantly higher response than any other color paper.

Salon Marketing Idea #2. Every person who works in your salon needs to have their own business cards. It ads a professional touch all the way around and it's a good way to promote your salon. They don't have to be fancy.

Salon Marketing Idea #3. Use referral cards on your existing clients. Tell them to hand them out to friends and family and when those individuals make an appointment and bring in the card your client gets something "free." It's an amazing form of salon marketing that has no real cost associated with it until it actually brings up new business.

Salon Marketing Idea #4. Spend time working with groups within the community. You might put on a free seminar for a women's group, you might offer spa services, or makeovers to cancer survivors, or you might simply speak to a local group. It takes very little of your time, costs very little, and provides significant marketing impact.

Salon Marketing Idea #5. Gift certificates are an excellent marketing tool. They are very affordable to print, and they make great gifts, bringing yet another new client into your salon.

Salon Marketing Idea #6. Give away products. If you have products that aren't selling very well, use them in your salon marketing by giving them away to promote your salon.
